And All Things Delicious Iced Latte

#1 ALL THINGS DELICIOUS [HALAL]

When you step into this chic Halal-certified bakery cafe, the perfume of freshly baked goodies is enough to tempt you into second helpings. The array of novel creations—from the zesty Sticky Apricot Pistachio Cake to the Crackly Top Brownie—will leave you spoilt for choice.

Their desserts’ exceptional quality is maintained through the use of all-natural, wholesome ingredients. The generous cake toppings, moist sponge layers and made-from-scratch sauces will make for a wonderful tea time treat.

Comestivel Desserts

#2 COMESTIVEL DESSERTS [MUSLIM-OWNED]

This Muslim-owned hidden gem requires just a tad more effort to find but do not let its simple facade deceive you. We were absolutely mind-blown by their solid Nutella Cheesecake (S$8). The balance in texture between the smooth top, creamy middle and crispy biscuit base is surreal! Another Nutella must-try is the Nutella Snowy Brioche. One word—irresistible.

For those who are not fans of this heavenly hazelnut spread (are there even any?), fret not for there are other tantalising options for you to sink your teeth into. Mixed Fruits Pavlova, Thai Milk Tea Cheesecake and Pandan Gula Melaka slices are just some to keep your eyes peeled for.

Take note though, their bakes do sell out fast. The earlier you are there, the more options you have (and the bigger the dilemma).

Fluff Bakery Cupcakes

#3 FLUFF BAKERY [MUSLIM-OWNED]

With over 100 cupcake flavours till date, the owners at Fluff Bakery are not afraid to experiment. This humble Muslim-owned cupcakery started back in 2013 and has garnered a huge following, explaining the frequent snaking lines during peak hours.

Coveted crowd faves include Durian Chendol, Triple Milo and Speculoos, with signatures such as Salted Caramel and Nutella Red Velvet that are constantly a big hit. At S$4 a piece, indulge in the spectacular burst of flavour with every bite.

Konditori Semla Buns

#4 KONDITORI [MUSLIM-OWNED]

This Muslim-owned artisan European bakery is the brainchild of the team behind Fika Swedish Cafe and Bistro. Though it focuses more on takeaways, you will not be disappointed by the plethora of authentic loaves, pastries, tarts and cakes.

The main star: Swedish Semla buns (S$5.90). We love how the fluffy buns are generously filled with almond paste and light, fluffy whipped cream. The Blackforest Croissant puts up a tough fight with its decadent raspberry jam filling and generous chocolate shavings garnishing the top. You will have to try them out and be your own judge for this one.

Kumoya Yoghurt Parfait

#5 KUMOYA [HALAL]

As with every Japanese eatery, presentation and aesthetics are key. This is evident in Kumoya, a quaint cafe that doles out too-pretty-to-eat desserts. It becomes somewhat a sin to dig into the delectable treats. The well-crafted eclairs (S$3/piece) and kawaii yoghurt parfaits (S$15.90) will leave you squealing with delight. Alternatively, the colourful macarons (S$2.80/piece) and sweet pancakes (S$14.90) will leave your bellies full and hearts content.

The Yuzu Yoghurt Parfait is one you should look out for; the sublime combination of the light souffle cheesecake with the plain soft-serve yoghurt and yuzu sauce is sensational.

Lickety Red Velvet  Waffles

#6 LICKETY ICE CREAM & WAFFLES [MUSLIM-OWNED]

Located next to Konditori, Lickety Ice cream & Waffles offers egglet waffles adorned with rich ice cream and yummy toppings. Picture this: a waffle bouquet sitting pretty in a pink pastel-hued paper holder. The plus points of this Muslim-owned outlet includes being able to concoct your own combination of waffles, topping and ice cream.

For S$8.90, you get a waffle with a scoop of ice cream and a topping of your choice. Top up S$3 and you can upgrade to a waffle with double scoops of ice cream and two toppings. Between the red velvet waffle and the buttermilk one, we find the former more appealing. Of course, if you cannot decide, tuck into the half-half option instead.

As for ice cream flavours, challenge your palate to take on the more unconventional picks—Taro Yam & Coconut, Root Beer Float, Earl Grey & Fig and Cotton Candy Bubble Gum.

Overrun Chendol Softserve

#7 OVERRUN.SG [MUSLIM-OWNED]

When the blazing heat in Kampong Glam starts getting to you, turn to this extravagant chendol soft-serve delight (S$6) sold at Muslim-owned ice cream parlour Overrun.SG. Durian lovers, you can jazz up your soft-serve with creamy durian pulp for an additional dollar.

The layers go like this—chendol soft-serve followed by Gula Melaka syrup and another swirl of soft-serve that is eventually sprinkled with green pandan jelly and coconut flakes. You get one final drizzle of that sweet Gula Melaka sauce.

Watch out for their weekly specials! We have seen Snickers, Ondeh Ondeh, Mint Choco Chip Crumbs, Thai Mango Coconut and good ol’ Bandung. What fancy option could they be introducing next?

Sinseh The Grocery Galaxy Donuts

#8 SINSEH: THE GROCERY [MUSLIM-OWNED]

From the experimental Muslim-owned cafe The Lab SG, their sister dessert branch welcomes you with an unusual range of sweet delights. Think Galaxy donuts (S$4), unicorn cupcakes and kiwi lime cucumber popsicles (S$2).

Of course, you have the usual waffles, ice cream and crepe cakes on the menu too. But it is not often you get to experiment with funky desserts right?
